Jacob Fairhead comes home with Gold
Jacob has well and truly fulfilled the promise he showed in karate when he was in Year 7. Then he was a double gold European Karate Champion at just 11 years old. Now in Year 9 he has competed in the World Open Karate Championship held at the weekend in Budapest, Hungary.
He returned with World Gold in kata - a system of individual training exercises - and World Silver in kumite which is freestyle fighting or sparring. Not only that he had the honour of peforming at the referee committee seminar, in front of some of the most recognised instructors in the Wado International Karate-Do Federation.
Congratulations Jacob! We're very proud of you!
Do the Maths! Year 10 students Libby, Evie, Jess and Cali took up the Alton School Maths Challenge this week. Working with four future Eggar's students from Bentley School, they tackled three rounds of very difficult problem-solving maths. They were fantastic ambassadors https://t.co/onVvrb3qcJ 10:18 PM - 25 Jun 2022
It's Fri-YAY and we're celebrating Matt D and his performance at the National Schools Biathle last weekend. He was placed 2nd in the Year 7 Boys race. (Biathle is an event that can involve a runswimrun course, or simply a swimrun course). #SoundsExhausting #GoMattGo https://t.co/pIe7RXQUpa 6:00 PM - 24 Jun 2022
